OTTAWA — A new study for the federal Justice Department says Canada should get rid of its law banning polygamy, and change other legislation to help women and children living in such multiple-spouse relationships.
“Criminalization does not address the harms associated with valid foreign polygamous marriages and plural unions, in particular the harms to women,” says the report, obtained by The Canadian Press under the Access to Information Act.
“The report therefore recommends that this provision be repealed.” [Source]
I only wish looking at Canada was like a fun house mirror reflection of the U.S. instead of it being a look into the future. Though as a read in another article this is inevitable once same-sex marriage is allowed since the "needs" of bi-sexual’s will be the next step forward. They just can’t fit in with traditional or same-sex marriage so the whole being open minded about loving relationship will march us along.
Though of course the culture has been working on this for a while – they just couldn’t get society to bite just yet. I remember in grade school going to an assembly where they had a show on Alvin Toffler’s future shock where part of the movie talked about "non-traditional families" of three people. Then of course they was Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young with their song Triad signing "But I don’t really see, Why can’t we go on as three." Though of course David Crosby could hardly see anything through his drug induced haze.
